I got one chubby chick completely finished today - appliqued the eye on and trimmed the block to size. Is it sick to make a chick out of duck fabric? I didn't want to use buttons as the eyes like they suggest in the pattern. I had some circle templates to make applique ones and I used some spray starch to keep things in place since the eye is so small. It went quicker than I thought and the eye stayed pretty round (I'm no expert and appliqueing tiny things). I'm looking forward to putting this top together, but I guess it's going to be a while before it's all ready. I've got other things going on!
One of the other things is the girl. She's so funny - already saying lots of words like car, doggie, more, all done, cracker, and of course, no no no. She's been eating quinoa, hooray! Too bad she's over the tofu. What other hippie foods can I try? :)
